Potato Wedges Oven vs Air Fryer
4 Large Potatoes
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
Salt/Pepper to taste
Clean, peal and cut potatoes in like size large wedges. Place in a bowl of cold water for 20 minutes. Drain and put the potatoes in a microwave safe bowl cook for 2 minutes. Place the potatoes on paper towels, pat dry.
Preheat oven 425 degrees. Spray a nonstick cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat air fryer at 355f/180c.
Transfer potatoes to a clean bowl drizzle with olive oil, garlic and salt/pepper to taste. Stir then put half of the potatoes on the baking sheet in a single layer and the other half in the air fryer.
I baked the oven potatoes 20 minutes on one side and 10 minutes on the other. The air fryer potatoes were cooked roughly 20-25 minutes as I checked and flipped them every eight minutes.
Since both potatoes were prepared the same I am assuming the calorie count isn't much different between oven baked and air fried, about 132 cal. a serving which is about 8 wedge potatoes.
So which is better? They both pretty much tasted the same, so it's really a cooking preference....I picked the air fryer.
